Commencement Ball

Now, for the first time in years, seniors will have the option to vote for their favorite Commencement Ball theme.

The 13th annual Commencement Ball, an annual event for graduating seniors and hosted by the Student Alumni Association (SAA), will be held on Friday, May 7, from 9 p.m. to 1 a.m. The formal gala will be one of four possible themes: ‘Brazilian Carnival,’ ‘Fire and Ice,’ ‘Around the World’ and ‘Circus.’

Seniors can go on CampusLive.com for the remainder of this week to vote. Once a student votes, they are automatically entered into a drawing to win a pair of complimentary tickets to the ball.

Tickets are normally $25 per person and include admission and refreshments. A dance floor and a disc jockey will be present. There will be a cash bar for students 21 years and older and photographers will be on hand to take posed and candid photos.

Last year’s event had maximum capacity of 650 attendees and over 200 students on the wait-list. Due to the popularity of last year’s ball, it will be held in the Mullins Center for the first time. The SAA hopes to have 1000 people attend.
